So the drought continues and the rivers are just getting more unfishable each day.
With new clients heading this way on Wednesday I am faced with having to make a decision on what system to fish.
I went for a quick overnight 40km- 50km paddle (It hurt) to pre-fish some tidal water and managed 28 fish.
It was a big paddle but I shouldn’t complain when you get to camp in spots like this…
You would think that my problem is solved and just take the boys there. However, the problem is the biggest Bass was only 44cm. Now I get that a 44cm Bass is awesome but that should be the average size of a fish on our trips.
So do we drag and haul ourselves down a dried up river bed looking for 5 fish or fish the lower river and take the numbers.
What would you do?
